“Enough is enough,” [Martin Lewis, founder of UK consumer information site MoneySavingExpert.com] said. “I’ve been fighting for over a year to stop Facebook letting scammers use my name and face to rip off vulnerable people—yet it continues.”
Emphasizing that he does not endorse any products or participate in any advertisements, but that ads on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and “sponsored” ads on Yahoo, MSN and Sky Sports News have made it appear that he backs a variety of dodgy products and suspect get-rich-quick schemes often using cloud and Bitcoin buzzwords.
This has resulted in him needing to hire someone just to report such as they appear on Facebook et al. the onus being on him to report such with their system of community moderation unless a nipple is involved, thus leading him to issue High Court proceedings for a campaigning defamation lawsuit against Facebook and will be seeking exemplary damages.
